Giving Back

It really is true that giving feels better than receiving…….and so the story goes. Westmount Florist has always tried to be community minded and give back to charitable organizations as much as we possibly can. We get an average of 10 requests for donations each week and we know that every single request is for a good cause.

Papa, Father, Padre, Pop, Dad..

Whatever name they go by, when it comes time to think of gifts for them, thoughts generally run the gamut of he-man gifts – rarely flowers. But yes……REAL men love flowers too ! They may sometimes act like they don’t, but that’s just dad laying out the rules in the Old School Testosterone Playbook. The same playbook that says real men don’t cry and shouldn’t wear pink.

Fabulous at 50 !

Turning 50 in life can be exciting and traumatic at the same time. Your body starts to do things you never thought could happen to you and your body can’t do things you thought you’d be able to do forever !! While turning the big 5-0 for me was exciting and really didn’t take too much work the thought of a business turning 50 takes a tremendous amount of work. Very few business make it to that amazing milestone and I am so proud to be able to along with my family carry on what our fabulous father and mother started 50 years ago. I know for a fact that unlike my turning 50, Westmount Florist turning 50 took a whole lot of hard work every single year.

Blooming Together

You’ve heard us talk about how excited we are to be celebrating 50 years in business this year. We feel so fortunate to be able to work with “beauty” each and every day. With that in mind we wanted to collaborate with another “beauty” expert……..and so the story begins.

Shhhhhhhhhh......being discreet !

Not that we are star stuck BUT when a superstar calls or comes into the store we have to admit it’s pretty exciting. However, being discreet in our business is a must and we have strict protocol for our entire team with regards to this subject.

A Very Special Event

Over the years we have been able to create events and arrangements for a vast spectrum of cultures and religions. I still remember the fist time I heard the word chuppah and wondered what it meant. Fast forward 27 years and I’ve probably decorated over a hundred of them.
